Really can’t believe that today marks the last day that you will see a LNER HST on the ECML. So glad, that I went on the very last HST Highland Chieftain up to Inverness last Sunday.
View from the very last northbound Highland Chieftain (LNER) service crossing the Forth Rail Bridge.
So looking forward to last ever trip on a HST on the ECML. Getting the train from Grantham up to York (which I believe, will be a InterCity 225), then boarding the Highland Chieftain service, which will be operated by diesel-powered InterCity 125 High Speed Train for the very last time! Going all the way up to Inverness.
This will be my third time using the Highland Chieftain service. Really, really looking forward to it!
Once up in Inverness, hoping to do the Far North Line, for the very first time!
